We feel lonely even if we are surrounded by people because they can't give us the time, the chat that we crave so much. Not everyone is a listener. Not everyone is an empathizer. It's normal for people to feel happy for others, spend a happy time because it's easy but it's not easy to feel bad for others, and give them the time they want. Giving the attention others want. To not make people lonely we have to be a little bit more selfless and care about other people's feelings a lot. And it's natural that we may not find the perfect person around us but we should never stop finding them.
